So we can watch Parra walk guys instead of Arredondo.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
Izturis is a rarity - a Cincinnati Reds switch hitter.
Reds now have Choo, Votto, Bruce, Paul, Hannahan from the left side. And Izturis switch hitting. Much, much more balance than last year.

I can't see any reason whatsoever to keep Parra over Arredondo if that turns out to be the case.
You have to look long and hard for something that Parra does better than Arredondo.
Maybe they actually think Masset will be back at some point?
I mean they're gonna lose (be forced to trade) Arredondo, right?
Look, I'm a stats guy, but Parra has historically been used as a SP and has dealt with injury. There aren't stats out there for us to properly use.
Plus, I'm not gonna get so worked up about the last spot in the bullpen between two players with roughly equal upside...
Quoted for truth. Simply being able to pitch multiple innings is meaningless if you add fuel to the fire while you are on the mound. The long man needs to hold the opponent and allow the bats a chance to get back into the game.He's got no business as a long reliever. I'm hoping Lecure gets a lot of the multi-inning assignments as he's one of the best in business in that role. IMO, long man is not a throwaway assignment and I'd like to Lecure get used a bit like Scott Sullivan back in the day.
